Each year it’s the same thing – it is too windy to play beach tennis and you cannot agree as to whose team actually won at baseball. It looks like it’s time to take summer games to a new level. Spikeball is an action-packed ball game from the USA that is perfect for the beach or park and on any pleasant summer evening!

The trendy Spikeball game places four players around the net, and the team that begins serves the ball toward the net over to the players on the opposing team. They then have two passes between them before they must return the ball with a bounce toward the net. Once the match is on, the players can move freely around the net chasing the ball – forget everything you know about courts and fixed positions – get ready for a fast-paced match! Of course, the goal is to beat the opposing team – without missing the net yourself! Points are awarded when a team fails to spike the ball back, and the team that first earns 21 points wins.

Spikeball has been seen on such things as TV’s Shark Tank, and is played by two teams each consisting of two players. The game is quick to set up and easy to learn, and you get two extra balls so you always have one available. Spikeball comes in a practical storage bag, so you can easy take it with you to the beach, park and everywhere else you get a chance this summer when you want to find something better than beach tennis and baseball!

Claustrophobia 1643 is an asymmetric, two-player strategy game of survival, hellfire, and demonic combat. The game consists of 20 different unique, playable scenarios—each of which lasts between an hour to an hour and a half. One player takes the reins of the infernal forces of hell, the other roleplays a rag-tag group of humans, and you both face off in a battlefield of twisting, tunneling catacombs. 

Both players get their own detailed miniatures and rules to play. The humans start with a set number of warriors (four at most) while the demons are constantly spawning new friends into the game.

I was astonished at just how much fun is packed into these short adventures. My favorite scenario so far was one tale of desperate flight, where my opponent’s sole goal was to flee through a dozen sections of the catacombs into the daylight, and I had to send wave after wave of demons to stop him. Even though he only needed 2 of his 4 crusaders to survive to win the game…none saw the daylight.
